The Automatic Positive Airway Pressure (APAP) Auto machines are set up with a minimum and maximum setting. The auto machine adjusts up and down between this range throughout the sleep period to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Usually the auto machine will stay at the minimum (start pressure) while the patient is awake. During sleep, the auto machine will increase and reduce the pressure as required. Typically the pressure is higher when the patient is sleeping on their back and less when on their side. The pressure will also vary depending on the different sleep stages, The auto machine will cope with all these changes by varying the pressure automatically as required.
